Supervision details

Part of the BACP Ethical Framework includes receiving regular supervision, which is a formal arrangement for therapists to discuss their work regularly with someone external to maintain adequate standards of therapy, in order to work both ethically and to the best of their ability.

My Approach to Supervision:

  • To spend time considering together what the supervisee is hoping to get from supervision, and to agree a working contract.
  • To explore expectations and concerns.
  • To provide a space for the supervisee to reflect on their work with clients, and to bring their struggles and breakthroughs.
  • To give the supervisee the opportunity to reflect on their development as a counsellor.
  • To consider ethical and professional issues in counselling.
  • To address possible issues around safeguarding clients.
  • To think about the application of theory to practice.
  • To reflect on the ‘here and now’ relationship between supervisor and supervisee.

My supervisory work includes:
One to one Supervision

  • Providing one to one supervision for counsellors / psychotherapists in training and working in private practice.

Group Supervision

  • I facilitate group supervision for counsellors in training and counsellors / psychotherapists working in private practice.

Group Peer Supervision

  • Myself and my counselling peers encouraged each other’s ability to be person centred peer supervisors.
  • We supported each other following qualification and embarking on our own private practice.
  • We supported and facilitated a trusting and congruent environment, each taking responsibility for our process.
  • This continues to be valuable in terms of learning not only about ourselves, but also providing the opportunity to collaboratively explore and develop our practice.

Tutor/Facilitator Mentoring

  • Trainee tutor mentoring for the Association of Person Centred Creative Arts Introduction Course tutor programme.
  • I provided support and feedback in preparation for and following our Introduction course sessions.

Students on the Association of Person Centred Creative Arts Certificate Course

  • I provide support and supervision for students on the APCCA certificate course.
  • Exploring individual needs when moving from working creatively and therapeutically with peers, to working with clients.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
